Domaine LEON BARRAL Faugeres 'Jadis' 2017
Wine Region: Languedoc-Roussillon - France
Grape: 50% Carignan, 30% Syrah, 20% Grenache
Tasting notes: The colour of the Cuvee Jadis delights being blackish-purple, almost opaque. Ripe plum and black-cherry scents dominate a fruit-forward aroma, but there’s plenty of earth to please the truffle-hounds. Leather and pleasant barnyard notes add complexity. Full-bodied, juicy and tart flavours, fresh black fruit and a hint of dark chocolate, nicely structured by crisp acidity; smooth tannins emerge as a cleansing astringency in a long finish, with a distinct whiff of fresh herbs and earthy grace notes that mirror the nose.
